The classic simple French toast, is a popular breakfast or brunch item on most people. Also, what is French toast anyways? It’s basically bread dipped into egg with a little cream or for me lactose free milk, a little cinnamon spices to bring the French toast. French toast has been known to be eaten with a little powder sugar on top or some maple syrup. However, let’s call French toast what it really day old bread dipped into an egg to and brown slightly on each side in a frying pan, an omelet of sorts. So I thought to myself why not make a savory French toast recipe because not everyone likes the sweet stuff.

 

Classic French Toast

Ingredients

4 slices of white bread ( you can use whole wheat bread)

2 larges or 3 medium size eggs

1 tablespoon of milk, or cream

1 teaspoon of cinnamon spice

1 pinch of kosher salt if it’s granulated 2 inches salt

cooking oil of your choice ( canola oil or blended olive oil)

Procedures

  1.  Place a non-stick frying pan onto the stove and turn the heat onto a medium high heat.
  2. In a bowl crack gently the eggs into a mixing bowl and add the milk and spices and whisk incorporating a little bit of air.
  3. Next take the cooking oil of your choice and coat the pan about 1 table spoon swirling around the oil to coat it evenly for even browning. Lower the heat to medium.
  4. Taking one slice of bread dip it into the egg mixtures and gently lay it down  into the pan to brown on both sides for about 1 minute on each side if you have a large frying pan you may add two dipped bread into the egg mixture and brown the toast for about 1 minute and 30 seconds or 2 minutes on both side evenly.
  5.  cook all four of the French toast and cut into half in diagonal to make triangle shape of a nicer presentation and use some powder sugar to garnish and there you have it classic French toast!
